This may apply to a limited number of modelers. As I'm pre-war gold
leaf was pretty common however I would guess during and after the war it was
probably very limited, if used at all.

Also, Roseman states that the ends of the car should be black, not green as
on both the BLI and the Walthers cars<
This is interesting! Sometimes it's hard to tell the end paint on older
B&W photos as the light is striking the car at different angles. Would be
nice if there was company painting information someplace.
Maybe it's time for an updated book?
